Is there a quick way to find out how many words I've written altogether in my posts on EL&U?


Using the SQL from this answer on Stack Overflow, I've put together a word count query on the latest data dump on the Stack Exchange Data Explorer.

There is not a way to see it in "real time" on the site. The data dump is updated regularly every Sunday.

  • It doesn't seem to work for ELL? – Mari-Lou A Nov 25 '15 at 8:53
  • It works for me. What is your ELL user ID? – Matt E. Эллен Nov 25 '15 at 10:05
  • Sheepish smile Oops, I just repeated my EL&U ID... I thought the username is the same, so the number must be as well. I now realize that would be pretty stupid, if I belong to ten different SE communities, I can't have the same ID. – Mari-Lou A Nov 25 '15 at 20:57
